What you're about to read is not a joke: Melissa McCarthy will be returning to Stars Hollow for Netflix's Gilmore Girls revival.
And that news is straight from McCarthy herself.
In her latest appearance on The Ellen Show, McCarthy explained to viewers that until just recently, she thought she would be unable to film the new Gilmore Girls episodes due to scheduling conflicts.
"And literally about an hour and a half ago we figured out that I am going to go back and do it, and I am so excited ... I am very happy to go back to Stars Hollow," she says to roars of applause from the audience.
We can only speculate where Sookie and her family's story will pick up, but no matter what the case, we're just happy that her character will be there.
